Are you tired of cookie cutter ru paul rejects clogging up the scene? Ever wanted to try out drag?
We'll.. the King is back! And we're reclaiming Canal Street!
Sail on down dreamboats!.... for a brand new KING, SWING N THING cabaret/Open Mic night and a Drag King workshop so hot it'll put hairs on your chest!
find a home amongst your fellow bois, butches, nbs and allies. Everyone is welcome!
Dress up theme is: Cowboys Vs zombies!
Our Debut show falls right between Wolfys Birthday and Halloween. We love Cowboys and we love getting spooky so rather than squabble between ourselves...we compromised.
Its everyone's two favourite themes smashed chaotically into one! With a side of cake!
So! Put your gladrags on, roll yourself in rhinestones, cut the butt out of your mom's best jeans, start to feel hot, slowly lose consciousness, wake up 7hours later with an insatiable appetite for brains, claw the guts out of you neighbour Pam and use her intestines as a cute belt….AND MOSEY ON DOWN TO THE BEST APOCALYPTIC BIRTHDAY PARTY IN THE WILD WILD (north)WEST!!
Canal Street Kings is a brand new Drag King cabaret and open mic night in the heart of Manchester's Gay Village.
3 of Manchester's Mightiest Monarchs have shacked up at The Cockatoo Club to bring you a night of entertainment centering and celebrating the Rainy City's rich Drag King history and making space for the new community to meet, grow and perform.
The Vicar's Daughter.
Featuring special guest Performers and ….you?
The night will consist of a Cabaret featuring guest performers from the local community and the national drag scene and an open mic section for performers of all disciplines and experience levels to try out new works or works in progress on the stage.
Poets, comedians, musicians, dancers, clowns etc anything goes. We very much encourage new Drag Kings, things and swing performers to take up these opportunities.
